(1) It features real people with real bodies as models, and
(2) The before-styles are what you actually see on the street, not someone trying to dress as ugly as possible like they do in similar books.
What makes this book different though is that it shows how you can "transform" your teenage daughter's clothes and sense of style to suit your needs, age and body shape. Yes, both of you can wear the polo-T but while she can wear one short enough to show her latest belly button ring, you need one long enough to skim over those hips. I
I have to say that this book is all about adopt and adapt.
Well, I was not dissappointed with this recent book (which is a follow-up to FOREVER COOL) at all...infact, I could not wait to give this review and let others know what a FUN and USEFUL book this is, especially to women in the late 40's to 50's and 60's (and beyond) age groups.
Ms. Mathieson always does a wonderful job at choosing "models" from the regular world (ie: NOT size zero models--yipee!) therefore, her ideas are always so reasonable and usable.
Ms. Mathieson has such a wonderful way of using colors, applicable to a woman's age and coloring. Also, the outfits she chooses would be easy to replicate by a "normal" woman on a fairly reasonable budget.
Another thing that I love about Ms. Mathieson's books (both of them) , is that she shows great BEFORE and AFTER photos.
Sherrie uses real women with "never cool" outfits you'll see in your own office or on the street. The "forever cool" changes are dramatic. Want to see a 63 year-old woman lose 20 years with a change of clothing? Check out pages 49 and 147. I'm not kidding.
Sherrie has a unique voice in a world of style opinions, and I love listening to her. Instead of being confused over the latest trends, read this book and learn about timeless style that is really (forever) cool.
I also loved page 119. I'm probably the same size as mom on that page. Mom is as cute as a button and stylish even though a lot shorter and more stout than daughter.
Thanks for another great reference book, Sherrie. If you're ever in my area, please stop in and go through my closet too!!!
